Vespa 946 Red, Sprint Carbon and Sei Giorni land in Malaysia
Heads up Vespa fans and collectors, authorised distributor Naza Premira has just made three special edition offerings available here.
Leading the billing is the Vespa 946 Red, followed by the Sprint Carbon and the Sei Giorni. Here’s what’s in store with each:
Vespa 946 Red
The retro-futurist and premium-priced 946 isn’t new, but this all-red special is. Unlike the base 946, this variant aptly dons the striking red hue on its steel body, as well as its aluminium mudguard, side, engine and transmission covers too.
Retained is the base Vespa 946’s modern air-cooled 150cc four-stroke single-cylinder engine and twist-andgo CVT automatic transmission, the former boasting a three-valve setup and electronic fuel injection.
Equally modern are its safety features. Brimmed as standard are Vespa’s Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) traction control and dual channel ABS suites, promising enhanced control over the stylish scooter.
Exclusively in red, it commands a base price of RM66,000 – ouch! Vespa Sprint Carbon
Should the 946 Red be too pricey, then this blacked-out version of the popular Vespa Sprint, dubbed the Sprint Carbon, has a more ‘grounded’ RM17,400 base price tag.
The Sprint is renowned as Vespa’s lightweight and sporty small-body offering with a distinctive squared headlamp design, and the Sprint Carbon further enhances that provenance with its exclusive, very racy all-black colourway.
This sporty classic harnesses Vespa’s current generation and Euro 4-compliant 150cc i-Get air-cooled single-cylinder mill and a twist-and-go CVT automatic.
Beyond style and efficient performance, the Sprint Carbon’s kit list features ABS brakes and a nifty USB charging port. In all, it’s a safe and very practical
Vespa Sei Giorni
Capping off the trio is the racy Sei Giorni special.
This exclusive variant of the big-bodied GTS model is set apart by its distinct and unique green colourway inspired by the famed “Sei Giorni Internazionale di Varese” rally.
Completing the heritage look are design elements like the racing number decal at the rear quarter, the repositioned headlight on the front mudguard, the unique flyscreen and the ribbed seat saddle.
To match the racy looks, the Sei Giorni packs a punchy, liquid cooled 300cc single-cylinder, quad-valve mill that outputs 21.2bhp and 22Nm to the rear wheel via a twist-and-go CVT automatic box.
If you want a go-fast Vespa with the authentic heritage race livery to match, the Sei Giorni is it. At RM38,000 onwards, this is no cheap ask, but true Italian style never comes cheap anyway.
